This is a very informational book. I read the first edition, and skipped the 2nd, and read the 3rd. Internet made the life of the used-book shops really hard, and not many shops still exist today. So the information on book trading is useful to those living in big cities only. I like to see more coverage on internet book trades. But still, a very good book to read.

Sort of dry and technical, but good information.

A decent first book on book collecting, written not only for the collector, but also those looking to get into the selling and trading sectors as well. Good basic info on publishing and distribution processes, first editions, condition factors, helpful publications and reference resources. Habitual readers will benefit by learning fun and profitable ways to acquire and dispose of "inventory"--maybe even making a few good deals along the way.
